Little Things Thursday: Books

I love books. I love displaying the books I've read. My shelves are a display of spines of various colors, sizes, and textures. 
Moving and packing these treasures up has allowed me to really explore each tome. Hold each book as I pack it up.  Now to unpack them when the time comes as the next chapter begins!

Movin' On Up

Well we're movin on up, to the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.

{The Jefferson Lyrics}
Well. It's crazy to say, but I am moving for the first time in 7 years. 

Yup. I am about 6 weeks out from marking seven years in Boston and in all that time have lived in place. 

But that is changing.

Time for a new home. I've found an amazing apartment. With many new bits I've never had in seven years. While moving may not be fun and it is hard to leave the little home I've had for 7 years, a new chapter is unfolding and it should be awesome once the boxes are unpacked!

Hartwell Tavern

They've all come
To look for America...
All come to look for America
All come to look for America...

{Simon and Garfunkel - America}

Due to a small camp field trip bus snafoo we found ourselves in Lexington at the Hartwell Tavern for lunch this week. I didn't mind a pit stop at a slice of history I've never seen!

Hartwell Tavern is an 18th century home and tavern. It is located on the actual "Battle Road" and was a witness house during the Revolutionary War. 

It is believed that the house was built in 1732-1733 by Ephraim and Elizabeth Hartwell and used part of the house to run an inn and tavern. It's said that on the night of April 18th, an advance guard of British soldiers captured Paul Revere and William Dawes just down the road from the tavern. 

Dr. Samuel Prescott who was riding with them, escaped by leaping his horse over a stone wall and fleeing through the pasture. He everntually came out by Hartwell Tavern where he woke the Hartwells and told him that the British were coming. 

The message reached the Minute Men in the area and the Lincoln Minute Men able to arrive at the NorthBridge before the British soldiers got there.
